Juventus Managua vs. Deportivo Ocotal Odds, Prediction, and Pick – Liga Primera de Nicaragua, April 15
There is some confusion over Juventus Managua’s standing after the weekend, as its game with Real Madriz was abandoned. But it will still go into this game against Deportivo Ocotal as the big favorite.
Juventus is looking for the points that will ensure a playoff spot, while Ocotal looks forward to the end of the week when a miserable Clausura season will finally be over for the northern club.

Latest Odds for Juventus Managua vs. Deportivo Ocotal
Given that Ocotal’s recent form has been very poor, it is slightly surprising how short BetOnline’s odds are for an away win here. Juventus Managua is still the favorite, of course. But I would have expected longer odds for an away victory here to possibly attract some backers.
Juventus Managua vs. Deportivo Ocotal Match Preview
Juventus Managua may well be awarded the points from its game against Real Madriz at the weekend, but there is some uncertainty about exactly what will happen next. Madriz players walked off after conceding a second goal on Saturday, and the game was then abandoned. With the home side right in the middle of the battle for playoff berths, the points will be crucial.
A home win is likely to be the result from that game and could well be the outcome of Wednesday’s game with Ocotal, too. Juventus is unbeaten in its last three now and timing its end-of-season run to perfection.
It is an almost polar opposite situation for Deportivo Ocotal, however. The 1-0 defeat to Walter Ferretti on Sunday made it seven games without a win now. Although the team hasn’t been beaten out of sight in any of those fixtures, that streak has seen it eliminated from the postseason race.
Just two wins in 16 games have made it a miserable Clausura for Deportivo Ocotal, and there doesn’t seem to be any chance of even a consolation win here, as the team doesn’t score many goals, either.
My Prediction and Pick
Juventus Managua to Win-244
This is another Nicaraguan top-flight game that looks to be going just one way. Juventus Managua has found a rich vein of form in its last few games and could be a tough opponent for any other club in the quarterfinals. Three more points here would seem to be a virtual certainty.
